I have "new" 650 motor for my next build.
I have a front frame and a nice bolt-on hardtail. Problem is, I don't want another hardtail bike.
Does anybody have a 63-69 swingarm setup they want to trade for my hardtail set-up?
My hardtail rear subframe and 16"wheel for your swingarm, rear subframe, shocks, and 18" wheel?
NC local would be nice, too.

Everyone knew the day would come when people would start looking for swing arms to put back on all the hardtailed bikes. most older bike shops have saved all the take offs for this and I've got several whole set ups I'm saving,
There should be thousands out there to buy. Good luck.

the T100's are a different frame than the 650's are

You may want to be more specific in your search for a swingarm as '63-69 is a fairly wide range of models. I don't think a T100 or a T150 swingarm will benefit you much. You will most likely want a T120 Swingarm.
I think the T100 is going to be slightly smaller in stature, and the T150 is going to have too much offset to it.

That's why I mentioned it was a 650. Pretty sure the T100 won't be the same. I have no idea about the T150. I'd say it needs to be from a T120 or TR6, ideally an "X arm" from a 68-70.
